      A bit more stabilty if you have more than one client

      I have found after a little experimentation that it is better to have your client mac addresses associated with an ip address. You can still have the clients set up to get an address automatically using dhcp but configure the router to issue a ceratin ip address to each client.

      So no change on the client, ie. set to obtain ip adress automatically and set to obtain dns server address automatically.

      In the router, select LAN IP Setup

      Check the box for Use Router as DHCP Server

      Then add your clients in the address reservation issuing the ip addresses as appropriate.


      Why do this: well i found every so often my clients would not connect without a repair. Since making this change my clients always get the same ip address and there is no problems connecting - it also seems to do it faster as well. Probably because there is now never no conflict with the cached information.
